Today was originally going to be a Halloween DIY.
I love Halloween. But this year has been so odd and busy that Halloween seems to be a passing thought.
It actually feels like an obligation.
I don’t like that.
However, I’m working more. I’m focusing on keeping my videos and blogs on schedule. I have to prep for a couple of big events, like going to a college four hours away who offered to read my play in their Reader’s Theatre. And I still have books to read.
I haven’t watched any Halloween movies because I’m just not in the mood.
Who am I, and what have I done with the real Alexandra?!
But this happens.
All we can do is our best. If Halloween gets stuck on the wayside, then that’s just how it is. I’m sure on the actual day, I’ll feel much more in the spirit of things.
Don’t worry too much about the celebration of things. Yeah, it’s nice, but if you can’t do it, don’t be upset. I would rather let Halloween die than to have a panic attack decorating because I could be using this time to work. And if you’re able to celebrate, let’s do the Monster Mash!
